You may not be aware of it, but seasons have a huge effect on your skin and acne. In the winter, you may suffer from intense dryness. In the summer, you probably struggle with more breakouts due to the heat and moisture causing you to sweat more and be more oily.

Acne and Summer

Ahhh summer…when you hear that word, you often conjure up images of the beach and relaxation. What you might not know is that your skin also tends to produce excess sweat and sebum (oil) during this period. When this happens, acne problems develop. The excess sebum in accumulates in your pores, clogging them, thus cause acne.

What should you do? One thing to try is to pat your face gently and regularly with oil-blotting sheets to prevent sebum from accumulating in your pores.

You should also cleanse your face at least twice a day, morning and night and follow with an oil-free moisturizer. This two-step skincare process will help get rid of the excess sebum and dead skin cells on your skin.

Acne and Winter

As if summer acne wasn’t enough, you also need to deal with acne during the winter season. At this time of the year, the extreme cold could leave your skin dry, flaky, and dull. With dry skin, more dead skin cells will form than usual, which in turn, settles in and on your pores, clogging the pores, and leading to acne.

When you are suffering from acne during the winter, you must always remember to moisturize your skin with an oil-free moisturizer. It will help prevent the flakiness and keep dead skin cells off your skin. The result then is supple, hydrated, acne-free skin.

You can also take an extra precaution by covering your face whenever you got out. The dry, cold air is your enemy during winter since it is the one responsible for drying out your skin. A scarf is best to shield your delicate skin.

Lack of sufficient water in your body (dehydration) could also contribute to an acne breakout whether it is summer or winter. Make sure you hydrate your body regularly by drinking at least 8 glasses of clean water every day. Add fresh slices of organic lemon to your water to add flavor and vitamins to it. You will have to drink more during summer since you tend to sweat profusely, which causes you to lose a lot of water in your body. It will also keep you cool from within.
